BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Unsolicited postcards are popping up in mailboxes across the Greater Boston region, promoting the far-right conspiracy theory “Qanon.”

The postcards are being sent from a P.O. Box in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, and have been mailed out in bulk numbers around the region.

The front of the postcard reads “The True Story of Qanon” — along with a QR code to a website, and the pictures of 20 well-known political figures and celebrities, from Taylor Swift and former President Trump to Dave Chapelle and Chelsea Clinton.

The back of the postcard features a long block of text, where the sender says — in addition to other far-right conspiracy theories — that all news and entertainment events were planned 20 years ago and that the world is going to end soon.

A code on the back of the card indicates they were sent using the U.S Postal Service's "Every Door Direct Mail" system, with "Postal Customer" the only hint of the sender.

The letters don't have a without a return address, name or signature. According to some reports, thousands of the cards have been mailed out. Dozens of posts on the cards were also all over social media on Wednesday.

The postcards don’t seem to be breaking any laws or violating any U.S. postal policies.

WBZ's James Rojas (@JamesRojasNews) also received a postcard — he's reached out to the email on the card, but hasn't received a reply yet.
